Greetings all. After many attempts at searching for this specific topic, I had to resort to raising a question here on the forum to seek some proper answers.
In short, AWS have recently released their T4g range of instances which (much like many other cloud/VPS providers) are now utilising a custom ARM64 CPU architecture. Now, there are quite a few posts out there about Webmin/Virtualmin’s support which all elude to support “eventually” coming, but most of these posts date back to 2017 and nothing thereafter.
I have managed to successfully install Webmin on Ubuntu 20 utilising the ARM64 architecture by specifying the --minimal flag. (Without specifying the --minimal flag, install work fine but there’s an issue with Procmail that’s obscure). Anyways, when performing an ‘apt update’, the process returns a warning advising that the Webmin/Virtualmin repo does not support ARM64 and has been skipped. This, to me, indicates that there will be a problem with picking up any new webmin/virtualmin versions that are released via the official repo - which leads to my question (actually 2 questions):
Is there a “manual” way to run a Webmin/Virtualmin update (when there’s one available) which can essentially be done by manually downloading and running an update package, vs. having to rely on the ‘apt update/upgrade’ process?
When can we expect to see official ARM64 support? The architecture is becoming increasingly popular for VPS’s and a solid bang for buck so it would be brilliant to see official support for it released at some point.
I hope the above information is clear enough and many thanks in advance to anyone willing to assist.
